Welcome to SEAOP,

The GREEK FEDERATION OF SPIRITS PRODUCERS - S.E.A.O.P- was founded in 1995, following the division of the activities of the historic Federation of Greek Wine and Spirits Industries (abbreviated to SEVOP from 1949 onwards) into two (2) segments: Wine Industry on one hand and Spirits Industry on the other. It is a private law entity, namely a non-profit organization.

In its capacity as a body representing purely spirits producers, it aspired to meet the increased needs of the Greek Spirits Industry and safeguard its interests both in Greece and throughout the globe.

The federation encourages, supports and promotes the socially responsible alcohol consumption. It is keen to work with governments and other stakeholders to reduce misuse and to develop additional initiatives to reduce it further.
